Imagine yourself getting lost in the captivating wonders of the Everest Base Camp Trek in the Himalaya. There can be nothing more wonderful than trekking in the wilderness amidst high soaring, snow-capped mountains.

Everest Base Camp Trek is such an incredible adventure trekking trip that takes you to the Everest base camp, base of the highest mountain in the world.  Trekking through the trail that passes amidst mountain peaks, cultural villages, glacial rivers and lovely vegetation is definitely an experience to take at least once in a life time. View of the mountain peaks like Thamserku, Ama Dablam, and several other mountains in addition to the 8,000 meters Lhotse and Everest makes this trip incredibly enchanting.

Everest is the region where Sherpa community, the climbing heroes, lives. Trekking to the Everest base camp is also an opportunity to know the culture and life style of these brave high-altitude heroes who make mountaineering possible. Apart from the culture and the mountains, you can also learn about the influence of Buddhism in the region. Thousands of trekkers trek to the Everest base camp every year as it keeps alluring people to enjoy the magnificence.

NOTE: It is recommended that you should arrive in Kathmandu a day earlier before you start your trek (if you do not have a day tour of Kathmandu scheduled). And If you have scheduled Kathmandu day tour you should arrive two days prior from the actual day from trekking.

If you are able to arrive a day earlier, it will be best for you as you will get some time to rest, know about the trekking you are doing, get info about the trekking routes, and you get time to buy trekking equipment if necessary. Similarly, if you can manage a day or two after trekking. In case of any flight delay from Lukla to Kathmandu due to different circumstances you will have lower chance of missing your international flights. Adding some extra days beside actual trekking days will help you enjoy your trip to Nepal to the fullest without having to worry about any preparations, any flight delays, and missing international flights

Flight Delay in Kathmandu and Lukla:

Tenzing Hillary Airport, also known as Lukla Airport, is the small but busiest airport situated on a wonderful valley fenced by high mountains. This airport has been carved into a mountain ridge and sites by a perilous three-kilometres drop. Because of the high location, the weather around here erratic and is likely to be changed in every few hours resulting in flight delays and cancellation.

Twin Otter and Dornier planes are the only the modes of transportation to and from Lukla Airstrip. However, because of the unpredictable weather of the high mountain reason, there is always the risk of flight cancellation or delays. In some cases, the flights are delayed or cancelled for 2 or more days. Due to the long delays in the flight schedule, it may hinder your trip. However, we Himalayan Scenery Treks and Expedition, help you to charter helicopter to or from the Lukla Airstrip, in case of flight cancellation or delays due to harsh and unpredictable mountain weather condition. We will provide you with the best service to make sure that you are on schedule for your trip and international flight connection.

To charter a helicopter to or from the Lukla Airstrip, you will be charged approximately 2500 USD to 3,000 USD per Helicopter. The helicopter conveys 4 to 5 passengers at a time, so the aggregate chartered fee can be shared amongst the passengers (USD 500 to USD 3000 is applicable per person). The cost of this service is payable directly to our office, and later this can be submitted to the travel insurance company for reimbursement. Our company will provide you with all the required documentation for the claim.

Hotel and Accommodation on Everest Base Camp Trek:

Trek to the Himalayas is one of the favourite destinations for the travel enthusiast and adventure seekers all around the globe. Although the Himalayan region of Nepal is the most popular trekking destination in the world; there are a lot of things people don’t have a clue. While trekking to the high mountain region, you will not find the hotels and accommodation as you see in the city areas. The hotels and accommodation around the high Himalayan have fewer services and facilities. The hot shower may turn out to be simply a bucket of lukewarm water and the toilet may be a latrine behind the hotel. The private room can be a wooden cell with no furniture except a bed, mattress, and curtain in place of the door.  So, while trekking to the mountainous region of Nepal, you need to be ready to stay in the less fancy and minimum facilitated hotels.

On the trip to the Everest Base Camp, we provide you with the 2 to 3-star standard hotel while you are in Kathmandu (i.e. for 3 Nights). During the trip to Everest, we provide you with the basic lodges and tea houses for your accommodation. The room of these lodges and tea houses are less fancier with just a bed, a pillow and a blanket. The lodges on the trail to EBC is always crowded and in some cases, you may have to share a room with other trekkers or may have to sleep in the dining room. We put our every effort to make your trek as cosy as possible. However, you need to stay flexible in some cases. We will accommodate the groups in local lodge available each day. We send the porters ahead of us to pre-book the room for the next day (rooms cannot be pre-booked on all places). 

In Kathmandu beside the 2 / 3 stars hotel, some 4 / 5 - star luxury accommodation is also available. If you want to change the accommodation plan to the luxury, please do let us know so that we can arrange and book the hotel for you for your Kathmandu stay.

Nepal is the country full of heart-warming natural beauty and a magnificent travel destination for the thrill and adventure seeker all around the globe.
